G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T has confirmed the highly-anticipated Cruel Winter compilation will not be dropping anytime soon and explained why team effort is not enough.
“I can tell you right now, I probably have 15 verses that are just over beats, that are lying around wherever ‘Ye and his hard drive is right now,” he said. “And I’m sure Cyhi, Sean, Cudi, Tip, everybody has other production or verses on these records as well. It’s no secret that Kanye is very guarded about his studio work and it is with reason,” Push says. “I think ‘Ye really tries to keep the brand, keep it up to a certain standard and piecing together a record like that, it’s just not gonna work.“
Earlier this month, G.O.O.D. Music’s Common also confirmed the LP will likely never drop.
“Oh, yeah, nah, nah. I don’t think that’s happening. It was more of a rumor — cats been creating, but everybody’s been doing their solo album. So that’s what that is.” (Vulture)
